Cornice control in the past few days, no deep releases.

At 2280 meters the temperature is -2 as of 06:00 hrs, winds were 35-55 KPH from the SSE.
At 1550 meters the temperature is 0, 100 % relative humidity and the barometer is steady.
In the valley it is +5. Will have new snow measurement at 08:00. 10-15 cm in the alpine.

The Alpine has been closed for the past 2 days. Fresh snow in the alpine may change things.
